Re: Explaining (or trying not to explain) the Pump

My implanting urologist, Edward Karpman, does lots of implants, perhaps the most on the west coast. This includes lots of gay men He has said to me that his patients have no trouble hooking up as gay guys seem to find the implant to be quite a novelty. I don't think you are going to be able to keep ...

Re: UroLift

Another option is Green Light Laser Surgery. I had it a week ago today. It was an outpatient procedure but that evening my catheter clogged with blood clots and I had to return to the ER. I would plan on at least a week to recover. The main downside, it seems, is that it can take several weeks to st...

Re: Cannot pump my AMS LGX to a decent erection

My method for pumping is that I grab the bulb of the pump between my doubled up right index finger and thumb. Then I place my doubled up left index finger and thumb over the rights. This way I get to use the strength of both hands.

Re: How soon can I go back to work after being implanted?

I drove ten hours round trip on day seven. It was not comfortable but I did it. On day eight I flew cross county. It was not comfortable but I did it. On day twelve I flew back with less discomfort.

Re: When to consider an implant (Long post)

I will just add that quite a number of guys here have posted that, due to ED, their spouse gave up on sex and is no longer interested, even after an implant. ED is frequently destructive to one's sense of self, to the spouse's sense of self, to intimacy and communication, and the routines that susta...
